Description

Two bedroom family house with balcony, set in the quiet, rural village of Casa de la Seda. Perfectly positioned as a start point for numerous walks, while at the same time only 2.5km from the beach.

At the heart of Casa La Seda's eight houses is Casita de la Cascada, 25mins. walk (2.5km) from the beaches (buses pass five times daily) at the junction of the main road and the paths crossing the valley to the small church and the various hamlets on the opposite slopes. Thus, it is at the hub of all the walking trails and directly connected to the path that takes walkers along a wild stream-side path to the waterfall and pool above, reached via a 30 minute hike.

La Casita is a typical village house of the old style, bought in 1988 as a ruin and restored by a master carpenter, with a terracotta tiled roof, wooden floors and beamed ceilings. The tiled terraces outside the two bedrooms and bathroom downstairs, and the living room-kitchen upstairs, are drenched in sunlight.

The tiled terraces outside the two bedrooms and bathroom downstairs, and the living room-kitchen upstairs, are drenched in sunlight.

The open-plan kitchen/living room has a ceiling fan, dining area, and armchairs. The two along-the-wall settees are standard bunk-width and length, and have large storage compartments for clothes etc. beneath.These can be used as beds for extra guests on request. The kitchen is well-designed and user-friendly, with cooking facilities, tableware, a toaster, electric kettle, fridge, cupboards and shelving. The spacious balcony opens off the front of the property, with ample seating and a table for outdoor dining.

On the ground floor, leading off the small terrace, is the master bedroom, with a very large double bed and a second bedroom with a standard double bed and al bunk bed above it. Both rooms have wardrobes and clothes cupboards. The bathroom, adjacent to both, and accessed via the courtyard, has shower, washbasin, toilet and bidet.

La Casita has the advantage of being an independent house, with only one dwelling just beyond it on the camino. The views are extensive, but are "windows" between other houses; on the road 50m outside, the view opens over the whole valley and the sea.

Location description from owner

The Canary Islands region

The Canary Islands are very different from mainland Spain, and La Gomera, more than any of the other islands, retains a truly Canarian identity. The connection was always with South America, rather than the mainland; the music is more salsa than flamenco; historically, the emigration was to Cuba and Venezuela.
La Gomera is unspoiled in the true sense. Development is low key, low rise; few buildings are more than two floors. There are no "sunset strips"; nobody selling time-share or the like, as in other resort islands, no English or Irish pubs, or urbanisations.
The roads are idyllic, perfectly surfaced, almost trafficless, and soaring through forests and over magnificent views. The walking paths were, until a few decades ago, mule tracks for to carry produce to market; they are often stone paved and well-maintained. They are well signposted and interconnected in a an outstanding network of routes.
The village of Casa de la Seda (The House of Silk; silk was once spun here) is situated in the lower fifth of the magnificent Valle Gran Rey, largest and most majestic of the La Gomera "barrancos", descending in green terraces from the forest 3,000 feet above down to the black-sand beaches and the sea.

La Calera

La Gomera, the second smallest of the Canary Islands is unique.  No region like Gomera's upland cloud-forests exists on earth. When the Spanish colonists cut down all the vast Canarian forests to feed sugar mills after they colonised the islands in the 16th century only La Gomera escaped, being then remote. For its uniqueness, it  was declared a World Heritage Park in 1986 (one of the very first) One can walk for miles through the heathers and laurel trees. The cloud forests feed the huge Valle Gran Rey with water; it is green, there is almost always sun but there is seldom rain.
The beaches are of black sand. Sometimes, in winter storms, the sand is washed away, but there is always sand on the port beach (with awesome cliffs above) and on the "Baby Beach" (perfect for children, but nice for adults too). 
Added to the outstanding natural beauty, local friendliness and security are a major attractions of Gomera. Children are safe ; there is virtually no crime and no loutishness; the environment is peaceful and very laid back. The visitors are largely those who enjoy nature, the local culture and the beach or the mountains.
